Libya: GNA forces patrol frontline as leaders commit to uphold embargo

Libya, al Twaisha
February 16, 2020 at 16:49 GMT +00:00 · Published

Footage shot on Saturday shows UN-backed Government of National Accord (GNA) forces continuing to patrol the area near the Swani frontline on the outskirts of Tripoli after an alleged missiles attack by the Libyan National Army (LNA) in recent days.

Soldiers on top of armed vehicles could be seen driving on roads reportedly close to al Twaisha, south of Tripoli international airport.

During the side-lines of the Munich Security Conference on Sunday, German Foreign Minister Heiko Mass, requested a European Union mission to monitor the shipment of weapons to the African country in order to secure the enforcement of the arms embargo agreed at the Berlin Conference. In addition to Mass, his Italian counterpart Luigi di Maio, reportedly called for a greater involvement of the United States to solve the Libyan crisis.

Fighting has been taking place around the Libyan capital since the LNA, which controls much of Libya's east and parts of the south, first launched an offensive to gain control of Tripoli from the GNA in April. The conflict eventually settled into a stalemate. At the Berlin conference on January 19, world leaders agreed on upholding a UN arms embargo and implementing a ceasefire in Libya.
